I went to the BMW dealer a while back to have a test ride. Almost didn't bother as it sounded so bad. I actually thought there was something terminally wrong with the engine. The dealer told me that was normal and 'they all sound like that sir'. Was astounded to find he was right and they do all sound like there is a problem with the valves.
Is it just me?

These are great bikes but 2006/7 models prone to noisey motors and piston slap so best bought cheap or avoided. That said, consensus is that they keep on going.
Go for a quiet one, they do exist, and enjoy.

Recently bought the 650 version same engine just a bit less power and more low down. The engine is pretty quiet on mine and very smooth up to 5k when you get a buzz. The seat sucks though, how can a company offer a "comfort" seat! surely that should be fitted as standard or a no cost option.
